Blarney's Cove - Closed

510 E. 14th St. New York, NY 10009 | East Village | 212-473-9284

Location Description:

A shelter from the buzz and bustle of 14th Street, Blarney Cove has all the marks of a classic dive: cheap booze, total lack of decor, a trivia machine, and a couple of old men sleeping at the bar at any given time. But the Blarney has an added charm.

And the barkeep pours them nice. Who needs fucking decor?
